Some are not medical grade and are useless. Also, will damage eyes with prolonged exposure.

I have been looking into other methods to disinfect various objects around my house and I believe using uv light does kill some things, however you may have to leave on the item for an extended period of time and it will only do the surface.

Instead I ended up ordering a few ozone generators and I am making a large sealed container to disinfect some harder to clean items. Ordered the ozone generators off of aliexpress. Down side is they will take a month to get here, and the ozone can be very dangerous if used Improperly. Also it will oxidize everything..

These are for bacteria, there is no evidence they work on SARS COV 2. UV light powerful enough to kill that virus is very dangerous, skin-burning dangerous.

$62 on AliExpress so price checks out, whether it's useful is another story though.

What about those UV light products that women use for nail curing? Can you stick a mask under there for 30 minutes and expect it to be cleaned?

Careful with these! I'm certain they'll work and breakdown the DNA of everything it touches with enough exposure. These are more commonly used in water filtration and air filtration, not meant to be exposed for our eyes and skin.

I don't think you are supposed to sanitize your eyes with anything, let alone this. It's better just to wear a face shield. Maybe a full motorcycle helmet with an N95 mask underneath for maximum protection.

PSA:
UV-C lamps are very dangerous. They require a period of contact to sterilize a surface (eg. a PhoneSoap 3 runs for 10 minutes to sterilize a phone) and should be used in an enclosed environment where possible.

Worse than useless.

Home Depot has 2.75L bottles of bleach on for $2 and change.

Diluted, that will actually sterilize surfaces and will last months.

We live in a tidepod and coronavirus challenge generation. Unless explicitly told so, assume people will do every and all stupid things like staring at a UV sterilizing light source.
